Cloud Centre of Excellence

Company News, EMEA, ICT, Supplier News
Getronics have partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) managed services provider HeleCloud to launch a new Cloud Centre of Excellence for AWS-based solutions.


The partnership will focus initially on Europe where Getronics maintains a presence in multiple European enterprises and mid-market businesses, and focus on the  retail, travel and transportation, financial services, and healthcare sectors.


Solutions delivered from the new Cloud Centre of Excellence will be organised into seven areas of competence which have been identified by their potential to assist businesses as cloud services gain in popularity:

  • Cloud Roadmap & Migration
  • Cloud Security, Compliance & Governance
  • Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery
  • Big Data & Analytics
  • Managed Infrastructure
  • Managed Security & Compliance
  • Cloud Technical Design Authority


Commenting on the development, Getronics Group Vice Chairman, Mark Cook, said:

"There is significant customer interest in and momentum towards public cloud services on the AWS platform. In adding AWS capabilities we are adding choice for our customers, which is absolutely the right response to their interest and public cloud’s current momentum."


Steve Rosa, Getronics Vice President for Cloud, Infrastructure and Security, added:

"Getronics provides genuinely end-to-end cloud-based solutions: we advise our customers on the best locations for their workloads, we run the transformation projects including application modernization, and we deliver the management of the full stack – all wrapped up in our security and compliance services."


Dob Todorov, CEO and Chief Cloud Officer at HeleCloud said:

"We are excited to establish this partnership with Getronics - one of the most successful and fast growing global IT business of our time, with impressive capabilities across a range of platforms. Together, we are much more than the sum of the parts, and we’ll innovate and build AWS capabilities to the benefit of Getronics customers."


Getronics which is already a Microsoft Azure partner will continue to deliver private and hybrid cloud solutions from its own hosted private cloud platforms in 19 data centres across Europe and North America.
